Just over a week ago, we announced Kingstonist’s Greatest Photo Contest. The response from local photographers was overwhelming, as our Flickr group is bursting with even more breathtaking, comical and unique images taken in and around the Limestone City. This past weekend, our jury struggled to come away with a small set of select photos for inclusion in our week-long poll to crown the best of the best. Needless to say, it was a very difficult task, and I want to thank everyone for submitting their entries. Based on the positive reception, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll be running another Greatest Photo Contest this time next year, but I’m getting way too ahead of myself. Now it is time to vote for your favourite photo. While we’ve shrunk each image to fit below, they’re all linked to their respective originals over on Flickr. In no particular order, the finalists are:
Waldron Tower by Errin Williams (left). Lights Out in Kingston by James Silvester (right).
Caffeine guides her to campus by mmmLo (left). Kingston Sunrise by Lito Ochotorena (right).
Lone Skater by Michel Soucy (left). Feeding the Gulls by J.A.G. (right).
Ferry in Fog by RCouper (left). Brock Street by NapaneeGal (right).
My pick for Kingstonist's Greatest Photo is:
- Lito Ochotorena (40%, 111 Votes)
- James Silvester (19%, 54 Votes)
- mmmLo (18%, 49 Votes)
- J.A.G. (9%, 24 Votes)
- RCouper (8%, 21 Votes)
- Mike Soucy (4%, 11 Votes)
- Errin Williams (2%, 6 Votes)
- NapaneeGal (1%, 4 Votes)
Total Voters: 280
Voting will be open until midnight on November 14th, while the photographer with the most votes will win a $50 gift certificate to Camera Kingston. Thanks once again for all those who entered, and thanks for voting!
